DotWalker


DotWalker is a travel assistant application primarily designed for blind and visually impaired users but it also enables eyes free control for everybody. This application provides navigation tools by handling a set of discrete points, which can be approached in several modes of control. Next, you can use a talking compass. Routes can be created manually, on the move simply by shaking the device, or with the help of Google maps direction service. Point of interest can be enhanced by audio record or linked to other media sources. Special approach mode directs you to the desired point by announcing direction and distance. On the point location can be supplemented by audio street view. Address announcement as an option. Currently published as limited lifetime test version.

Good app Good app, but it updates directions way too late. Late enough to get me seriously lost if I weren't testing it on a well known route. Keep at it guys. Hope I will be able to use it soon.
